Default Aerovox vs Blackgate

Anybody have experience with Aerovox 2200uf 80v .....I have 2 Mono Block amps with these in the power stage....

I read that these were similar to blackgates......but they sound lean to me and don't resolve as good.

These Mono's do throw a very deep sitting in the 10th row as comared to a blackgate 2nd row. The Blackgates have amazing transparency.

I would like to find a blackgate to use in these amps but I don't think they made a 2200uf 80V........What would be the absolute best sounding cap.

I'm not a tech so sorry if I left out any relevent info.

As a side note I had a Accuphase P300 recapped with Blackgate N and NX......the reputation of these caps are truly earned....simply amazing.
